Drake and Future’s Collaborative Album Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart
The album/mixtape moved 375,000 copies since its release on Sept. 20. Of that total, 334,000 were pure album sales, according to Nielsen Music. WATTBA also holds the distinction of having the second-largest sales week in 2015.
The duo’s chart achievement makes them the first rap duo since 2004 to have separate No. 1 albums in one year. Drake topped the Billboard 200 tally in February with If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, while Future’s DS2 LP debuted at No. 1 in July. This is Drizzy’s fifth No. 1 album of his career and Future’s second top-charting album in less than two months.
Music charts aside, Drake and Future are current cover stars on two popular music publications. The OVO leader graces the cover of The FADER‘s 100th issue, while the Freebandz CEO is featured on XXL‘s Fall 2015 issue.
Is there anything Drake and Future can’t do in 2015? Hopefully, the rap tandem will put their creative minds together and launch a U.S. tour. Since they have conquered the Billboard charts, it’s only right they conquer the world stage next.
